I had surgery a little over a month ago and I've lost 36 pounds. I don't know why, but it seems less than some.

How much did you loose in the first month?

Hi jenn1376, I think you are doing great! I started off at about the same weight as you, but I had surgery in December and have only lost about 40 pounds. Much less than many others here and les than most of those in my support group. I am older than many others so maybe that is why I am losing more slowly.

Just keep working at it and I am sure you will do great! :)

You should feel great about that amount of weight lost. I am 3 weeks post op, and have lost 18 lbs. and I'm celebrating each pound - I have never lost 18 lbs in 3 weeks! Every person is different, and I am learning to love myself and the new body I am slowly getting!! Good luck to you! ????

Thank you all for the support. :)

I have lost 42 pounds so far and I can really tell the difference in my clothing. None of it fits anymore. So to Celebrate. I'm going to buy new jeans from the women's section not the plus size for the first time in 17 years!

I had surgery October 13, 2014 and I had lost 23 pounds on my own from May 2014 to October 2014 but since my surgery I've lost 55 pounds they give me a grand total of 78 not as much as other people in my group not as much is one of the others who had surgery on the same day as me she's already in the 100s. Well I'm lingering in the 220s but it's still better than the 300 I was that in the beginning. My diabetes is gone as well so that's a plus.

        I've been a member since 2008, but just now decided to go ahead with surgery. Barely getting started 😁

      I joined BariatricPal in 2008 & I FINALLY made the descision to have WLS!! I'm so excited & not sure what I need to do to get the ball rolling, but I made an appointment with my PCP for 7/19. It's a start I guess.

        I've been dreaming about it for 30 years or so. It's time to make it happen!

      I joined yesterday when I was struggling with this preop diet... 
      It typically comes and goes, the hard times and easier times. I'm on day 6 of 14  shakes, water, sf Popsicles and jello. And I might actually be losing my mind. But, oh dear lord has the fear set in. Not about the surgery itself, but life afterwards. If I feel this crappy on the preop diet, am I going to feel like this forever after? 
      I know most of the answers are no, not forever. It might be worse after for a while, then get better. I know it's a more of a mental challenge than physical after the first couple weeks of healing. I get all of that. But I'm starting to feel scared about losing myself afterwards. 
      It might be my hormones or desire to chew something salty talking.. It may go away soon or tomorrow.. I can hope, anyway. But right now.. The fear is real. 
       
      And this liquid diet can bite me.

        Fear is normal, but if it makes you feel any better, I'm 4.5 months post-op and the pre-op diet was by far the hardest part of the whole process. There will be challenges and a lot of new things to learn, but I can honestly say at this point I feel so much more "back to normal" and was even able to go on a week-long vacation with my kids without stressing over it. It's so worthwhile.

        @NickelChip This actually does make me feel better! Thank you so much! After the onslaught of Covid, we've all had to deal with a "new normal", so I know it's possible. It's just the fear and frustration in this moment that makes me question if I can find another "new normal" afterwards. The thought of just a few more months seems daunting some times, but I really do appreciate input and real experience. I'll use that to get me through for a few more hours! LOL. Thank you so much! And I'm glad everything is going so well for you! ❤️
